- Ph.D. First Chapter Done
similar to me then, lots of words, much to be removed. Am quite thankful the weather has been poo or I’d have sacked it off to ride bikes.
Annoys me that my supervisor, who cant understand anything bar MS Word, gets uber cranky at type issues that occur due to writing in LaTex. Then when asked to view a PDF says ‘no, its easier this way’
No sir, it is not.

6,000 words chopped out in 3 days. think PhD is better for it, but a bit saddening.
was told to stop working day and night as supervisors had limited resources/were going on holiday and thus my deadline was unreasonable… as they wouldn’t put in any extra hours to read my drafts.

I agree with not accepting certain edits, there are a few I’ve not been, and refusing to actually
A point about this though – you need to be able to talk whoever suggested the edits round to your way of thinking, and agree they were wrong. If you can’t do that, the viva will be tough…Posted 5 years ago

Agree 100%, had a sit down with supervisor and explained those sections, he understands now, wso we’ve a nice compromise going.
We also agree’d that the submission date, 9th July, was a bit tight for our liking, so pushing back to 1st weekend in August. Annoying, but all the actual words are down, just a matter of making less and a better order.
Strange, but I feel more relaxed due to it. Which is nice.Posted 5 years ago
